President Appoints Transgendered Person to Federal Post

Print Friendly Version of this pagePrint Get a PDF version of this webpagePDF
President Obama, in his ongoing attempt to make the far left happy----especially the gays, has appointed Amanda Simpson to the Bureau of Industry and Security as Senior Technical Advisor.

She, formerly he, said he/she hopes to "soon be one of hundreds" of transgendered presidential appointees.

ABC reports that she transitioned from male to female while working at Raytheon in Arizona.

Jake Tapper at ABC, also reports she ran unsuccessfully for the Arizona House of Representatives and was a delegate for Sen. Hillary Clinton to the National Democratic Convention in 2008.

Matt Barber, associate dean at Liberty University, said the appointment "boggles the mind."

He told Focus on the Family, "This isn't like appointing an African-American in order to try to provide diversity and right some kind of discriminatory wrong. This is about political correctness."

Peter LaBarbera told Focus this is just another way to normalize homosexuality and transgenderism. He said, "It's always the incremental change that keeps moving forward and keeps getting more radical."

It appears our president has now established yet another quota---this time based on gender confusion.

God help us.

  1. I can't help but notice that at no point does Gary or Barber or LaBarbera concern themselves for even a second with the question of or not Simpson is qualified for the job. The only thing of concern to them is the fact that she is transgendered, which is apparently in their minds sufficient to bar her from federal employment. Anyone care to explain how this is not textbook discrimination and bigotry?

    I know you folks get your panties in a bunch whenever that word is used, but it seems undeniably apt in this instance.

  2. Forward and more radical....it's the wrong directon.

    When up is down and left is right
    forward is back and day is night.

    What's lost can only be regained
    by going back to where we got off the path. We let some people say we should get God out of everything. Jesus is coming back.

  3. This person is being used for political ploys. People in our government are being used in spiritual warfare. They don't seem to know how they are being used to frustrate the purposes of God. It's not just people in government either. Anyone willing to be used for evil will be used for such purposes.

    This stands as another example of not resisting evil, and setting forth evil as if it were good.

    Let's try to remember the dream a man had, where people of all races
    and color would be judged according to the content of their character.

    Now if this person tells us that what they did was wrong and what we see is not a good example of character, but God in his grace and mercy has provided deliverance
    from their sins of the past, and is presently leading them into the recovery of what they used to be, and they begin showing the outward signs of it, then I will stand and applaud and say we should have more men like him in our government, that the United States may again be a light to the world
    giving the honor to God that is due him for his great love for us in Christ Jesus.

    Now if anyone doesn't like that, I think that might be discrimination.

  4. "President Obama, in his ongoing attempt to make the far left happy----especially the gays,"

    Judge not lest ye be judged... with the same measure ye mete so it shall be measured unto you...

    Gary's strictly partisan eye can see beyond on his ideology - that in fact this individual is VERY qualified for this position.

    Yup - this is disgustingly evil and the very reason I hate the right wing - that have abandoned any of the integrity to which Christ has called us - and yet use His glorious name for their personal ends. Blasphemy is a gentle word...

    I can give this one to Obama for courage to do the right thing if nothing else...

    re: Back where we were
    We were at a place where people were being fed to the lions because of professing faith in Christ. How far back did you want to go...


  5. My concern is can she
    do the job?
    Does she have
    the skills , training and knowledge to do the job effectively?

  6. Ok, so she's transgendered. So, can she do the job?

    Only the religious right can imagine a world where those whom they don't approve of are disqualified from opportunities because of completely unrelated factors.

    If you can show that she's got the job because she's transgendered and is otherwise inept, then I'll be angry, too. Until then, keep your bigotry to yourself.

  7. Depends on why the president named her (let's go with "her") to that position. Is it because of her resume, or because of her pelvic issues? Frankly, I don't think a Senior Technical Advisor in the Commerce Department is in a position to be a national role model, so I just don't see any inherent danger in the appointment. But if she's just a token, then she should turn it down out of self-respect.

  8. Can she do the job?

    The Job this gal is taking on involves making sure US technology that can be useful for making advanced weaponry – or Furby dolls – doesn’t fall into the wrong hands. It requires absolutely the best possible person for the job, with extensive experience in defence technology, or one day a US city is going to be froth on top of a mushroom cloud.

    Ms Simpson has more than 30 years of experience in the aerospace and defense industry, most recently serving as Deputy Director in Advanced Technology Development at Raytheon Missile Systems].

    She also holds degrees in physics, engineering and business administration. She is a certified flight instructor and test pilot with 20 years of experience.

    Rocket Scientists with degrees in both Business Administration and Engineering who are available are pretty darned rare. That's what you need though.

    Given her qualifications and experience... I'd say yes. Probably the best person in the country for it. Certainly the only one available.

    The real question for some though is whether National Security is more important than keeping trannies in the gutter, where they belong. Many don't think it is.

  9. Just because people are qualified to do a job doesn't mean they will do a good job, nor does it mean they will do well to the end.

    Remember Judas Isacariot. He had some troubles with his character as we all have had in the past.

    I don't think we are being fair to anyone if we simply look at qualifications without looking at character.

    I know there are reasons I am not aware of as to why the Lord chose Judas. I believe he gave him every chance to repent and get clean of every sin just as he gives to all of us.

    Some of us make it and some of us don't, but let's understand that we should look at a person's character, especially before giving them an important position that will affect a lot of people by what they do, or have an effect upon the conscience or psyche of others by their behavior or manner of life.

  10. That's why her 30 years of experience in the industry, and proven track record at Raytheon is so important.

    As is, for that matter, her achievements in Human Rights, and scoring an award from the YWCA.

    If that doesn't give evidence of her character, what would?

    I'm not Trans myself: but I am Intersexed, born with a body neither wholly male nor wholly female.

    It sucks, to put it crudely. Badly. Very Badly. The medical issues and social stigma are just part of it.

    I have some idea of the issues she's faced, the challenges she's overcome. I'm a Rocket Scientist too, with 30 years in Aerospace and Defence, so I have some idea of her technical qualifications as well. Not in her league though, not remotely.

    Politically, I'm far to her right: but she has integrity as well as talent.

    And one thing, I think all officials should have. Part of the treatment regime for transsexuality is an assessment over several years of both sanity, and psychological strength. You have to be extraordinarily stable.

    In many ways, it takes balls to transition, more so than to be a test pilot. Many don't make it, quite a few die in the attempt.

    You have to face the fact that for the rest of your life, you will be a pariah to a large segment of the population, classed with child molesters and the like. You face 17 times the average rate of being a murder victim, and the police tend not to extend themselves too much in investigating such cases: only 30% are solved, vs 70%+ for the rest of the population.

    Read some of the comments here to see what I mean. IS - Intersexed - people face much the same stigma (trust me on this).

    She's overcome all of this, picked up a sackful of degrees, had a most impressive record of success, and managed to fit in time for politics and human rights activism too. And been a test pilot for high-performance jets.

    If she weren't transsexual, who could have objected to this appointment? The thing is, that for many people, it's a deal breaker. Just as for many people, her being Jewish, or Black would be.

  11. Patrick - "the very reason I 'hate' the right wing"? Did I read that correctly? I can't claim to channel Jesus' intentions as you quite often do, but I swear you sometimes say things that truly must make Him weep. Can you explain to me why the left is SOOO intolerant, consumed with rage and driven by hate?? (oh, and a very happy 2010)
